Shri Nathji used to say.
The objects of this world are meant as a medicine for the basic needs of man. For example thirst is cured by water, hunger by food etc. But man deludes himself into believing that they contain the means to obtain happiness.
Man tries to seek happiness in the things of the world, said Shri Nathji, but he does not know that he is chasing a mirage. No matter which branch of the tree of life his heart alights upon, the very same branch breaks off. Happiness cannot lie in the perishable things of the world. Real happiness lies elsewhere. It is only the Beauty of God that is reflected in the world. Bereft of it, the world is dead matter. Total fulfilment lies only in God. Everyone desires            happiness. Scientists, philosophers, atheists and religionists are running after the same elusive object. They are all, directly or indirectly, moving towards God.
